This blog post announces
plans for a standalone version of the DayZ
zombie modification for Arma II
, something that was first mentioned just a month ago
. Here's word:
Thatís right, this is actually happening - DayZ will be developed as a standalone game, with me as project lead, by Bohemia Interactive. This is the fairy-tale outcome for a mod that many would have said impossible four months ago.
Development and updates of the mod will continue in parallel with the development of the game, so anyone who is playing the mod now will be able to continue to do so. The project will follow the Minecraft development model; fast iterations with the community alpha available for a heavily discounted price.
I realize people will have many, many questions - but we wanted to let everyone know the announcement now. Over the coming weeks, these questions will be answered. The game will have itís own site, www.dayzgame.com and the mod will continue at itís present link.
